Calling all poets, spoken word artists and wordsmiths. Thomas Nelson Community College invites you to let your creativity flow during its open-mic Poetry Coffeehouse Series. Sponsored by Student Life and Leadership, the open-mic gatherings will take place at campuses in Hampton and the Historic Triangle, Williamsburg.

Students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to share original work or favorite poems, or to just simply attend. Featuring facilitators from the English department and College libraries, the free series will also include refreshments. 

The 1 – 2 p.m. Poetry Coffeehouse gatherings take place in the library at the Historic Triangle campus and Diggs Hall’s room 158 in Hampton. Each month brings a different theme.
